The BC Ministry of Citizens’ Services is making $1.9 million in upgrades to the historic Rossland Courthouse.

The goal of the project is to improve accessibility both from the street and the new parking area, according to information provided by the ministry.

Accessibility is being improved with an access ramp and an accessible parking spot on the Monte Christo Street side of the building.

Contractors are also making repairs to the exterior east entrance canopy, repointing the bricks — renewing the external part of the mortar joints — and cleaning and patching the exterior wall surfaces.

Repairs are also underway inside, where the walls are being repaired, the attic and basement are being remediated and the attic stairs are being reconstructed.

Construction work on the outside of the building is expected to be completed by February and the remaining work will be completed by the end of June.

Access to the Rossland Courthouse is through the Monte Christo Street entrance while the Columbia Avenue entrance is closed. (Chelsea Novak/Rossland News)
